A new report ‘Advocacy, Rights and Civil Society: The Opportunity for Indian Philanthropy’ published by Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy’ reviews the changing trends in the funding of the non-profit sector in India, particularly in the recent context of the Government of India’s heightened attention on inflows from international donors.
It also examines the impact of these trends on local civil society organisations and discusses significant areas of opportunities for Indian philanthropists to play a more enabling role in the non-profit sector.
In the foreword, Ingrid Srinath, Director Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy says ‘Indian philanthropists have been at the forefront of giving to the freedom struggle as well as to movements for social justice throughout history. Today philanthropy in India needs to go beyond financial support to active championing of freedoms of expression, assembly and association, and to forging the crosssectoral partnerships necessary to confront contemporary societal challenges.’
